Quotes by Elizabeth Kolbert  (?)

“Though it might be nice to imagine there once was a time when man lived in harmony with nature, it’s not clear that he ever really did.”
Elizabeth Kolbert, The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History

“A sign in the Hall of Biodiversity offers a quote from the Stanford ecologist Paul Ehrlich: IN PUSHING OTHER SPECIES TO EXTINCTION, HUMANITY IS BUSY SAWING OFF THE LIMB ON WHICH IT PERCHES.”
Elizabeth Kolbert, The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History

“To argue that the current extinction event could be averted if people just cared more and were willing to make more sacrifices is not wrong, exactly; still, it misses the point. It doesn’t much matter whether people care or don’t care. What matters is that people change the world. This capacity predates modernity,”
Elizabeth Kolbert, The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History
